Police say nursing home resident killed 2 with arm of wheelchair

Correa frequently made aggressive threats, bullied his roommates and appeared mentally unstable, Acosta's family members said. Officials from Pinnacle Health Facilities XV LP, which owns Lexington Place, said in a statement that they are cooperating with police in the investigation and could not comment on the incident. Cecilia Cavuto, spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services, said the agency will check whether the facility was adequately staffed, in compliance with state and federal regulations, and had appropriate training and procedures in place to protect residents, among other criteria. According to Cavuto, federal and state regulation states that a nursing facility "must protect all residents from all possible abuse from any person." The agency evaluated the facility in February and recorded 17 deficiencies of federal standards and 21 violations of state standards. Depending on the results of the agency's investigation into the deaths, the 200-bed facility could be fined, closed or lose its Medicaid and Medicare certification, Cavuto said.
